Happy CANADA DAY! What being a Canadian means to me...

When I think of Canada Day especially during a pandemic, I think of how lucky I am to be in this country. 

I'm not saying it's perfect by any means and see the work that needs to be done with our BIPOC communities. The fact these are conversations we can have openly makes me even prouder. This is a place where we have the opportunity to do better, be better and make things better for everyone. There's hope here. 

I've been very fortunate to travel to many places all over the world from India to Russia and there's something about coming home to Canada, and my adopted home town of Toronto. I have a place here with people who have also chosen to make Canada their home. Living here I have learned so much about different foods, cultures and enjoy the diversity of what the city has to offer. 

So when I say Happy Canada Day what I mean is - I'm happy to live in a place where I feel safe, have opportunities to be a self employed women, can voice my opinion freely and have the chance daily to do better & be better.

Have you seen our Canada long lasting matte lipstick? It's the actual pantone shade of our flag and is fabulous! My tribute to the place I'm grateful to call home.
